9780143038269: The Scene Book: A Primer for the Fiction Writer

A treasure-trove of scene-writing wisdom from award-winning author and teacher Sandra Scofield

To write a good scene, you have to know the following:
· Every scene has an EVENT
· Every scene has a FUNCTION in the narrative
· Every scene has a STRUCTURE: a beginning, middle, and end
· Every scene has a PULSE

The Scene Book is a fundamental guide to crafting more effective scenes in fiction. In clear, simple language, Sandra Scofield shows both the beginner and the seasoned writer how to build better scenes, the underpinning of any good narrative.
